    My thoughts on the knife so far after a couple weeks of use:

    I don't think it's a huge miss from Benchmade (although YMMV); I see it as a larger Bugout with a tanto profile (which I personally don't mind), and like the Bugout, I think it suffers from the marketing surrounding the knife that's trying to sell the blade to a certain crowd for uses that it may be able to handle, but won't excel at in comparison to other similar blades. I think given its light weight and slim profile, it's an excellent EDC blade for those wanting something a little larger than a Bugout.

    It's a bummer that Benchmade ran the 3V soft, but I've carried it to work everyday with me this week so far and it's performed more than adequately imho. Just sharpened/touched it up for the first time last night and it was surprisingly easy and didn't take too long (the silver lining of them running the steel soft I guess).

    All in all, enjoying my FPR example and looking forward to enjoying it even more when it's wearing matching Ti scales with its smaller sibling!
